Matsuri – Japanese Festival

Character Study

Personally I am not a big fan of wrinkles, but when there are photographs or individuals with deep character lines they need to be captured in a drawing.  These lines have not developed overnight, instead they have deepened and formed through a life of experiences.  Just think of the numerous stories that might accompany the aged faces…

  Thank you to Florian Niessner for supplying the excellent photograph.

Japan is a bucket list destination for myself and one of my daughters.  Hopefully one day soon we will get to experience Japan’s beauty, culture, and festivals.
